Kids Concert Carroll Park

By Lisa M. Collins

Key Wilde & Mr. Clarke , 4 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 25. Food and fun from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m.

From presser: “With original, interactive songs ranging in style from bluegrass to ‘80’s punk rock, Key Wilde and Mr. Clarke create a zany musical world where pigs grow as big as tractor trailers, little dogs think they are bullfrogs and people can go to the moon in a red balloon. During the past two years, Key Wilde & Mr. Clarke have wowed children, parents and critics, enjoyed heavy rotation on Sirius Satellite Radio’s Kids Place Live show and garnered a Parents’ Choice Gold Award for their debut book and CD set, Rise and Shine.”

Please join us next month for our last show of the 2012 season:

Saturday, September 29th  (in collaboration with PS 29)

Councilman Brad Lander raves: “A great event in the heart of beautiful Carroll Gardens, the Carroll Park Kids Concert Series keeps getting bigger and better.”

Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz recently praised the Concert Series:

“Young families continue to make Brooklyn their home because of efforts like yours.”

All four 2012 concerts are collaborations with local schools, to benefit the arts in the schools and raise badly needed funds for arts programs.  We also hope to collaborate with school choruses and middle school bands when possible.



A beloved summer mainstay with the local families of brownstone Brooklyn, the Carroll Park Kids Concert Series has become a must-attend event for kids of all ages.  Revived by local mom Simmi Degnemark in 2008, the concert series has grown in size and scope every year since.

Earlier this year, Carroll Park Kids Concert Series Director Simmi Degnemark was honored, along with several other distinguished Brooklyn women, at the Women’s Herstory Induction Ceremony with the Lucy Burns Activist Award for her contributions to our community. Degnemark was praised for her tireless efforts to produce and promote the concert series, which brings together the entire Bococa community, and benefits the park and local schools.

Speaking at the event, Degnemark said of her work with the series, “For me it’s a dream. I get to bring music and the arts, family and education to the borough of Brooklyn.”
